NYC IMC Subpoenaed Again

Being the target of city government harassment is a sign that NYC IMC is having an effect, but getting subpoenaed still sucks. According to a NYC IMC feature posted today, they received a subpoena for information they might have regarding the World Economic Forum. The IMC’s sensible response to the City’s harassing demands: “Why doesn’t the City ask the New York Times for all of their articles and emails relating to the World Economic Forum?”

Indeed, this shows every sign of being a determined pattern of legal harassment against the NYC IMC. The subpoena is the fourth time since August 2004 that US law enforcement has taken legal action against the IMC. Three of the four subpoenas have been issued in New York City.

Power does not like to be questioned or challenged, democracy or accountability be damned. That’s why we need Indymedia.
